Cyber Security Innovations Stage

Targeted attacks and data breaches in the cloud, financial losses on blockchains, euphoria over Gen AI along with the rise of AI deception and the elevated level of hype surrounding the all-encompassing Web 3.0 is grabbing daily headlines with no signs of slowdown. It is therefore imperative to delve in the security and privacy implications of these emerging technologies and be mindful of their peak of inflated expectations and the trough of disillusionment, as is evident through the Gartner’s Hype Cycle. Viren plans to distil in plain language, how he and his team help FinTech start-ups navigate this hype, whilst striving to build a resilient cyber security posture, right from the start of their incubation journey.
